Olympus Pen E-PL6

Got a new camera! It's the Olympus Pen E-PL6 with 14-42mm lens, mirrorless camera (top photo). I know that most bloggers and camera enthusiasts are currently raving over the E-PL7, which came out in 2015, but I was not up to purchasing a camera that cost $499. The differences between the PL6 and PL7 (from what I read) doesn't really justify a $200 increase for me. The E-PL7 has wifi access, so you can instantly upload pictures or selfies online, but to be honest that (and other specs) doesn't really intrigue me. I care most about pixels, ISO, low-light capabilities, autofocus, and image stabilization. I'm not an expert by any means, but those are things I noticed over the years that I valued most in my own photography. 

I did not take this camera out for a spin yet, but from the pictures I took so far of my room, (my room is kind of mess right now so can't share the pics haha) I'm in love. This camera costs $299, but I'm just letting you right now that for the quality of this camera, it is DEFINITELY a bargain. It's small and compact, the auto-focus is more stable/accurate and doesn't make a whole bunch of noise like my 18-55mm Nikkor Lens, the low-light photography is MUCH better than my Nikon D3100 (bottom photo), the general perspective and control is better, I'm in LOVEEE. I had some good times with my Nikon D3100, but it's time to move on...

I'm also so happy because I won't feel as paranoid taking it outside, it won't be as bulky, it's much more subtle. I hate bringing attention to myself, and every time I took out my Nikon, I would get a million stares because it's a pretty big, standard-looking DSLR camera. I feel like with this one, it won't be as bad. People are always curious when you take out a camera so looks can't be avoided, but I definitely won't get as many. 

I am so excited, can't wait to show you all some photos that I take with this camera!

  1. Oh nice! I've really enjoyed using my mirrorless since I switched from my DSLR as well.
